The Shepherd Boy and the Wolf

 

BW is a card poorly cropped by the printer: some of the next card down shows through, and the top margin is not complete here.  In this version, the boy as usual cries "Wolf!" and means it after tricking people several times.  They answer "Look out for your own mutton, we are busy just now with Fairbank Canning Co's Beef."  "Moral: Never holler for Mutton when you can get our Canned Beef."  This card, which may complete the set, came with a number of others from Betsy Cotter, Tonawanda, NY, through eBay, Feb., '12.
